Summary
At eleven o'clock on the morning of 11 November 1919 the entire British Empire came to a halt to remember the dead of the Great War. During that first two-minute silence all transport stayed still, all work ceased and millions stood motionless in the streets. Then, at two minutes past eleven, the moment was brought to an end, by the playing of the Last Post. A century on, the Last Post - the infantry call played on bugle, rather the aristocratic sound of the cavalry trumpet - remains the most emotionally charged piece of music in British public life. In this book, Alwyn W. Turner considers the bugle call's humble origins and shows how its mournful simplicity reached beyond class, beyond religion, beyond patriotism to speak directly to peoples around the world
